Pedro Ximénez, Perez Barquero 'Los Amigos'
Pérez Barquero was founded in 1905, but the name was known only locally until 1985, when businessman Rafael Cordoba bought the winery in Montilla-Moriles. He’s raised its profile significantly by demanding the patience to let the wine age in solera, obtaining the complexity that both flor and oxidation can give.
Fino [‘refined’ in Spanish] is the driest and palest of the traditional varieties of sherry and Montilla-Moriles fortified wine. They are consumed comparatively young and, unlike the sweeter varieties, should be consumed soon after the bottle is opened as exposure to air can cause them to lose their flavor within hours.
This is a fino of perfect definition that bears the beautiful and evocative name of the old winery where it ages for three to four years. With its clean aromas and its dry, light and balanced palate, it represents an ideal gateway to enter the world of traditional Andalusian fortified wines. A pleasure made to share, always with friends.
